are saying... [ all ] i'm with scottrade. clinton yesterday and sat down with my cgi panel. the saudi philanthropistens ameerah al-taweel, deepak chopra, recording artist and retired general wesley clark. >> ameerah al-taweel, let me start with you. you come from saudi where you have been in the vanguard of promoting women's rights in a country not renowned for that over the last few centuries. how important is it to you to be doing this in saudi arabia? >> i think women's rights not only at the van guard of what we need to focus on in saudi arabia and also the region. the strongest form of empowering women in the region and more specifically saudi arabia is economic independence. once a woman is counting on herself, she will not put up with a lot of things that you see in the media. if you are talking about numbers, a lot of people focus about women and driving in saudi arabia. but not being able to drive has not stopped us from developing. 120 billion saudi reals in and 8 billion in investments are pumped by saudi women. all of these women work. all are passionate about wh

in america it's 1979 tehran. even today mitt romney in his cgi speech talking about reagan economic zones. reagan also raises taxes. >> reagan would have been a rhino in this republican party. the irony doting on the ghost of ronald reagan is he could not have survived in the current iteration of the republican party. ronald reagan said no to war with the soviet union. ronald reagan actually said yes to reducing the number of nuclear weapons in both sides arsenal's. ronald reagan was a figure almost more comfortable in barack obama's democratic party and his wing -- >> don't say that too loudly. >> check your twitter feed. >> just exploded. >> we have to take a break but we are waiting for the president to speak at the clinton global initiative. meanwhile, president obama and governor romney also spoke at nbc's education nation summit. big times. we will discuss their remarks. also paul ryan weighs in on the last night's nfl controversy and brings it back to, guess who, president obama. all of that is next on "now." want to try to crack it? yeah, that's the way to do it! now we need a lit

. they are pretty fired up about health and education. your special area of interest here at the cgi is about the health and well nes. that point with the global population. if they are not healthy, they are not well. >> we monitor well being in different countries and the well being of communities and of nations. number one is denmark and canada and then -- >> why are they so healthy? >> they have social security and they are not worried about health insure. they all don't want to become billionaires. >> but here is what we found. >> we classify people on the scale of one to 100. if your score is over 70 you are thriving. if your score is 40 to 70 you are struggling. if it is less than 40 you are suffering. when the country starts to suffer. you are going to see resolution and unrest. we knew what was happening in libya. we knew what was happening in egypt and serious. just based on well being. it is the number one indicator. again, i talked to you about this. there is a brilliant scene this year. where jeff daniels goes into this huge rant at the college lecture about where america has been

this occupy people and let them occupy the empty seats. i live in hollywood, cgi is there for a reason. god gave us cgi for a reason. >> let's not hope no cgi for either convention. i want to ask you about this hot topic. >> the camera men are all nodding yes. >> let me ask you about this question. it was ronald reagan who made it famous. the question being are you better off than four years ago? it's hard for president obama to make that argument when you look at the unemployment rate. it's still extraordinarily. the economy is still running on fumes, jay. >> i really don't think obama has put the facts up. if you look up, i'd have blackboards and pointers everywhere. george bush lost 3.3 million joh jobs. he's put 3.4 million back to work. that's barely a percent of our population. i don't think you feel it. i think the regulations against the so-called bad guys that got us into this, they haven't taken effect yet. i think you're four years in, i don't know if you're married or not. four years in people start to smell differently and look differently and act differently. you still want to

announced. tell us about it. >> yeah, we're excited to work with dow corporation as part of our cgi and their cgi. when nobody was getting clean water in rural areas in india, they came in and experimented if you looked at low income people as potential customers. took a really long time to figure out what on it would take to market, to distribute in a way that people valued and could afford and dow's been part of that journey with us. n now water health insurance has raised $70 million in traditional capital, reaching hundreds of thousands of people, brought the model into west africa and that's just one indication of how these companies work and why patient capital is so important. as part of the cgi commitment, dow will work with acumen fund to bring its expertise, its skills, not just financial support, to companies with whom we work in africa. and we think bring real change to those companies as a result. >> how do you choose what to invest in? i mean, you know, with some of the political and policy obstacles you've got to face when you invest in certain countries whether it be

to cgi today to see -- >> whahappened to that football gam last night? >> eggiou >>hat ppen? >>s tehe breaking point on the replacement refs. last play of the game. there was a bad call before that. but the last play of the game, a heave into the end zone, looks like the pacrs defender inrcepts it. e ofcial stoow seahawks, and the one on the left gives the time-out signal, so they split it. so they review this play for ten minutes as a monday night football audience waits to see the result of the game. elten-minute review confirms it, touchdown, seahawks win the game, packers fall to 1-2 and are furious. it wasn't just a bad call or two guys splitting the call, it's the fact it took them ten minutes to look at this and come up wita decision. aotms left the field and had to return for an extra point. so -- >> okay. >> well, if only the nfl made enough money to pay the refs, we wouldn't be talking about this. that's it. it's got to be very tough. >> raise some ticket pres. >>weouav bake sale, maybe, mika. if we could get a bake sale for the nfl. >> wow, that was a tie. it's bright green

want are in newer members to know. first of all, the first presidential election we had after cgi started was in 2008 and then senator obama and senator mccain came. when the president took office in a very busy time, he would still come here every year, and i think it is in no small measure because he basically started his life as an ngo. [applause] that is what he was. as a community organizer. and then he picked the secretary of state who was a walking ngo. [laughter] [applause] so i'm very grateful that he made time to join us here today to give a very important speech at the united nations earlier about all the things going on in the world and i am particularly appreciative of what he came here to speak about today so mr. president the podium is yours and thanks for coming, again.

a a man, you educate one person, you educate a woman, you educate a village. i think he's seen that at cgi. and obviously his wife, the secretary of state, has been an outspoken supporter of girl power as well. >> yeah. he's not ruling out the possibility that she might consider running once again for the democratic presidential nomination then running for president. we'll have to wait. >> he's not ruling it in either. >> no. he's not ruling it in. he's not ruling it out. we'll see what happens down the road. my own suspicion is i think she will. that's my own guess. i have no inside information. it's very intriguing at the cgi, the clinton global initiative, next week there will be two big speakers in addition to bill clinton. mitt romney is going to speak, barack obama is going to speak. not surprising that the president is going to be at the bill clinton event, but mitt romney a little intriguing. what's going on? >> well, again, as i was saying before, i think cgi, the clinton global initiative is a worldwide platform. and it's nonpolitical. it's nonpartisan. he's looking to do the mos

campaign, the governor himself will announce his remarks here at cgi he is planning yet another foreign policy speech to again outline his criticisms of the president. romney's argument has been obama leadership worldwide has weakened the stature of the united states and has made it more difficult for us to hold our adversaries at bay and put us in adversarial position with a lot of our allies. most notably mitt romney can't go a foreign policy speech once without saying in his view the obama administration has thrown israel under the bus. he has specifically been playing to his relationship with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. they have known each other for almost 30 years when mitt romney took his overseas trip he spent a lot of time with netanyahu and referred to each other by first names and very informal and on brightly spotlighted international stage. romney believes he will strengthen u.s. alliances with israel and that is absolutely necessary and he suggested mr. obama too often has been disrespectful and given the cold shoulder to the jewish state that becomes em
